This is not an issue. When index updated using "Update on Save" this will not set last updated date. Whereas if you run indexing manually then it will set last updated date.

Just make sure you have enabled magento cronjobs by this command:

php bin/magento cron:install

For detail of Magento indexing you can follow my answer here:

  • For every 5 minutes you need to update crontab.xml file, the file location would depend on your index type. You can find it in relevant module. You can search on codebase to get location of crontab.xml if it is in core module, then you would need to override it Commented Jul 2, 2019 at 15:37

First reset that two indexer and run indexer for that two index.

Run below command:

php bin/magento indexer:reset catalog_product_category catalog_product_price

php bin/magento indexer:reindex catalog_product_category catalog_product_price

php bin/magento cache:flush

For set up cron:

Install the cronjob by this command.

php bin/magento cron:install [--force]

Refer the link for more information:


Hope it help.

  • This worked for catalog_product_category but not for 'Catalog product rule' The time is still not updated
